About time you showed back up here lol.

Gonna' get around to watching that WCW tag later tonight. I watched some old ROH stuff last night and I think the 4 way world title match at Redemption where Gibson won the belt was absolutely fantastic. I don't remember it being that good, and I checked the DVD review thread and I didn't see anyone who thought it was as good as I did. One of my favorite ROH matches ever and quite underrated.

I also watched Punk/Aries from DBD III again and while it is great and the atmosphere is amazing, Punk completely no selling the kick, 450 combo really took me out of the match. I did, however, love Punk kicking out of the pepsi plunge at a 1 count and hulking up only to get knocked out by an elbow.

Going to rewatch the Danielson/Strong series tomorrow to see if the Vendetta match is as good as I remember it.

Sheeit, that tag is awesome, but it's not better than Rockers/Orients. Well I wouldn't really argue with anyone that thought it was better, but it's not THAT much better. There's a Rockers/Brainbusters tag (don't remember which one specifically since they had about 4 million) that's about as good too, and I still think the Clique tag is tremendous.

The Clash tag might be one of the best American tags of all time, maybe just behind the Steamboat/Youngblood v Slaughter/Kernodle Final Conflict Steel Cage tag. Its just a perfectly worked style and a master display of crowd control and 4 brilliant workers putting on a sensational match, doesn't hurt that arguably the 2nd greatest tag team FIP is in the match against one of wrestling's best tag team heels either.

Gibson's whole run in ROH (as well as some hidden WWE stuff, step up v Mysterio Velocity Match which is fucking awesome) is incredible, everything from his arrival up until the Danielson title switch is worth watching, and the Punk saga and Strong match are incredible. I recall enjoying Punk/Aries, but yeah there was some indy pitfalls that definitely stopped the match being in the elite category for me, but with the atmosphere, pre and post match angle I can't fault anyone who looks past that and appreciates the match in a wider context.

Danielson/Strong Vendetta is my favourite ROH match ever, though I consider The 6th Anniversary show match v McGuinness to be ROH's best match ever. Danielson though in this match feels like 80s Ric Flair with how he combines the cowardly/sneaky character that riles the crowd up to the point where we have a clear face/heel dynamic with the crowd demanding Strong be crowned champion and then manages to add so many brilliant exchanges that reinforce his ability as the best in the world and keep up an incredible match. The finishing stretch and post match reaction might also be my favourite ROH finishing stretch, you can literally feel yourself hating Dragon with every sick elbow to Strong and realising just how hard its going to be to see him lose to someone.

I agree with the bolded part.

The underlined part just seems like a massive stretch to me, though.

I mean, I can see the case that it's better than any WWF/E tag ever, even if I think there are a few that are as good or better (although there wouldn't be many). It's definitely one of the best WCW tags of the 90s (arguably the best, although I personally wouldn't argue that). But #2 *all-time*? If I had any sort of motivation to come up with a personal top 20 it'd most likely be in or about there, but top 5 seems like a huge stretch never mind second just behind the Final Conflict tag.

I could be forgetting a few matches/not watched some others that may appeal to me, but yeah on last watch I just adored everything about it from the characters, to the crowd, the setting, Jim Ross on commentary, little touches etc etc. Something about it just stuck with me and made me appreciate it so much more, same with Hogan/Flair Halloween Havoc Steel Cage being my #11, even though there are a ton of matches on my ballot I would probably watch ahead of it, something about it just made me love it so much more that I decided it was worthy of placing incredibly high on my ballot.

I was only jesting anyway, though I'd rank it ahead of Rock/Austin (I like it but really more for Austin's character than anything else), Diesel/HBK and just ahead of Hart/Perfect.

But aye, hell of a tough competition there.

Austin's character is really what makes that match, anyway. Shit, the whole story of the match was basically his character "devolving". Plus he was cursing like a trooper really loudly the whole time.
